This first one is my niece's audition tape for Tampa FL's American Idol. Basically this helps her bypass the long lines to audition. If Fox News Tampa picks her as one of the ten finalists, she goes to a mall to perform. If she gets selected there, she'll go straight in front of the judges at the upcoming auditions. I am SO excited for her and think she did awesome!! Please leave comments here or on You Tube to encourage her. The mall performance is July 1 so it's coming up soon! And if you live in the Tampa area, please go down to the mall that day and scream really loud for her!! I can't be there or believe me, I would be screaming my heart out.
The second one is the book trailer for my friend Mary's new book, Thin Places, which comes out this January. I am one of the fortunate people who has already gotten to read this book and I tell you it's a must read... so put it on your list. I would compare it to the style of Donald Miller or Anne Lamott (minus her cursing)-- very well written and spiritually powerful. So check out the video now and put the book on your "to buy" list for this winter!
